Girls Empowerment Academy


The Empowerment Academy for Girls at Carnoustie Golf Links is unique. Empowering girls to speak up and speak out by being positive roles models is at the core of this fantastic program and is allowing girls to shape the future of girls golf in Carnoustie while reducing the drop-out rate from the sport.

Led by Empowerment Academy for Girls founder Jill Duke and supported by the PGA Golf Development Team, the program provides girls who are enrolled in the Carnoustie Craws Junior Golf Academy with a clear pathway to success that goes far beyond the physical skills of learning and playing golf.

Girls in this group are in S1-S6 and are truly making a positive impact on Carnoustie Golf Links and themselves. Key activities for this group are:
